IPD Switches Provide Greater Reliability, Safety and Longer Life

Conventionally, in order to construct safe vehicle systems that take into account functional safety, fuses are adopted as a countermeasure against overcurrent flow during system failure in automotive ECUs. However, issues related to aging and maintenance after fusing (meltdown) have increased the demand in recent years for intelligent power devices (IPDs).

IPDs are semiconductor-based devices that protect electronic circuits from breakdown (i.e. due to overcurrent during abnormalities). Unlike conventional fuses, semiconductor fuses can protect circuits without degrading or breaking down, making it possible to achieve maintenance-free systems.

ROHM offers AEC-Q100 qualified IPD switches for the automotive sector that integrate Open Circuit Protection, Thermal Shutdown, and Open Load Detection functions.
